BEIJING, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- Foreign institutional investors possessed 3.84 trillion yuan of bonds on China's interbank bond market by the end of September, reported Xinhua-run Xinhua Finance on Wednesday.

The report quoting data from the Shanghai Head Office of the People's Bank of China said that the figure accounted for around 3.5 percent of the total bonds under custody on the interbank bond market.

By products, T-bonds and policy bank bonds held by foreign institutions took up 59.3 percent and 28.0 percent of their total bond holdings under custody on China's interbank bond market, valued 2.28 trillion yuan and 1.08 trillion yuan respectively.

In September, 12 new foreign institutional investors entered China's interbank bond market. By the end of September, there were 991 foreign institutions trading bonds on the interbank bond market.

Among them, 494 foreign institutions entered via the China interbank bond market direct scheme (CIBM Direct) and 703 ones came in via the Bond Connect program. 206 ones entered via both of the two channels to invest in China interbank bond market.

CIBM Direct is a high-efficiency and low-cost route for overseas institutional investors to trade bonds of varied types on China's interbank bond market. Bond Connect is a mutual market access scheme allowing investors from the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong to invest in each other's bond markets. 

Foreign institutional investors contributed in September 930 billion yuan of cash bond turnover on China interbank bond market, which averaged 42 billion yuan per day. (Edited by Duan Jing with Xinhua Silk Road, duanjing@xinhua.org)
